Whirlpool Duet 4.5-cu ft Washer and 7.3-cu ft Electric Dryer

Hi,

I am planning to buy Whirlpool Duet 4.5-cu ft Washer ( WFW95HEDW) and  7.3-cu ft Electric Dryer ( WED95HEDW). As per your site it mentions that assembled depth is 33 inch for washer. I have to put both the dryer and washer in laundry closet side by side and the depth of my closet is 34 inch, width is 64 inches. Just wanted to confirm that this washer and dryer will fit in my closet before I purchase.

Thanks,
RP

Hello RP1974, and welcome to the community!

The width shouldn't be a problem, but the depth is an issue.  Most installations require a minimum of 5"  clearance behind dryer for exhaust vent with elbow. I have included below the Dimension Diagram for each machine so you can determine if you can make it fit or not.

Hi Angelo,

Does that mean I will need 33 + 5 = 38 inches?

There is another post on your forum where HD rep mentioned that Assembled depth includes the hoses also.

It says " The assembled depth is the overall measurements with all accessories such as hoses and vents installed."


Thanks,

If you look at the manufacture drawing (see link below) and my picture below, for the dryer the depth is 31 inches and the Required minimum of 5 inches for a rear exhaust, total 36 inches
